DCDP Committees

County Executive Committee (CEC)

The Party Secretary is elected by the members of the Executive Committee. The role of the Party Secretary is to record the minutes of each Executive Committee meeting, and to assist the County Chair in running the Executive Committee meeting. The Party Treasurer is ultimately responsible for party finances and ensures that the DCDP complies with State and Federal law.

State Democratic Executive Committee

If you have spent time working with the Dallas County Democratic Party or attended an Executive Meeting, you probably have heard the term “SDEC” being mentioned. SDEC stands for State Democratic Executive Committee; it is a special body created by the Texas Democratic Party and meets quarterly. The State Democratic Executive Committee's mission is to: "Carry on the activities of the Party between State Conventions in compliance with the law and with the directives of the Convention."

The SDEC is composed of elected TDP officers, one female and one male representative from each of Texas' 31 Senate Districts (SDs), one female and one male representative from the Asian American Democrats, Coalition of Black Democrats, County Chairs Association, Democrats with Disabilities, Hispanic Caucus, Non-Urban/Ag Caucus, Stonewall Democrats, Texas Democratic Women (two female representatives), Texas Environmental Democrats and Texas Young Democrats. Democratic National Committee members also attend SDEC meetings. SDEC Members are elected every two years by delegates to the State Convention.

Committees & Councils

The Committees & Councils of the DCDP carry out assignments, provide recommendations regarding formal policies, programs and procedures to the DCDP Chair for the activities of the Party, and monitor implementation of these adopted recommendations. Committees are appointed by the DCDP Chair and councils may include individuals and/or groups outside the DCDP. The Executive Committee and Chair may also create ad hoc committees as needed to provide recommendations regarding policies not within the purview of a standing committee. An example of an ad hoc committee would be the Rules Committee, to review DCDP party rules and make recommendations to help streamline the organization. The chair of each standing committee must be a Precinct Chair, and is appointed by the DCDP Chair. Members of each committee may be appointed by the DCDP Chair and recruited Committee members shall be: 1) Democrats 2) persons with knowledge or expertise related to the specific committee to which they are appointed; and individuals who are committed to the principles and platform of the Democratic Party.


Community Council

Created from the first ever Dallas County Democratic Party Listening Tour of nearly two dozen core constituencies, the Community Council’s mission is to unify and display the diversity of our big tent party by ensuring an equitable seat at the table.
